MyEcilpse for Spring?

The "MyEclipse for Spring" (particular edition of MyEclipse) demos I've seen are quite impressive in how it sets up the Spring scaffolding for you.

My question is whether people are using it for actual projects.

Although MyEclipse for Spring appears to be able to create an entire Spring MVC app for many different front-ends, automatically via check-boxes (Java, GWT, Flex,...), from reverse engineering database tables, the actual work begins when you need to add (non-reverse-engineered) forms and such.

Having a tool that manages all the XML configuration and basic setup chores sounds like a no-brainier. Why, as the "MyEclipse for Spring" demos suggest, spend hours or days on setup tasks when these mind-numbing tasks can be automated?

Can anyone therefore recommend MyEclipse for Spring over say, Intellij IDEA or just regular MyEclipse Pro for Spring development projects?

Thanks in advance.
